What iPad models are compatible with the Sphere app?


Stitching requires significant device resources, and not all iPad models are capable of this.

For best results, Teradek strongly recommends using the iPad Pro 12.9.

The following devices are compatible with the Sphere for stitching purposes, but have varying hardware capabilities and subsequent restrictions on the performance of the app.


Strongly Recommended:

  • iPad Pro 12.9


Recommended but not advised:

  • iPad Pro 9.7


Not Recommended:

  • iPad Air 2


NOTE: not advised / not recommended models will need to have the encoding and streaming settings reduced.


Not Compatible:

All prior iPad models are not compatible and supported by Teradek for stitching purposes.

This includes the iPad Air, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4, and all versions of the iPad Mini including the iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Mini 4.



Local monitoring on additional iOS devices is planned for a future release of the Sphere app.

This article will be updated with device limitations once that release is available.
